In preparation for the Year In Review and the BCGLP Symposium on May 23rd, the EDI Fellows put together blurbs about their projects to accompany their posters and presentations. We are featuring one every day until May 23rd. We hope you can join us. Here is Olivia Danielson ’21 and Christopher Asuncion ’21 about their work with Dr. Call on 3D printed inertia models.
Christopher and I are making six 3D-printed models, five cylinders and a sphere, to demonstrate inertia in Dr. Call’s physics class. The challenge is to design the shapes to have the same mass. To make sure each of the masses are the same, we will test print smaller versions of the objects and then weigh them, making sure that all the shapes, except for one, has the same masses. After we make adjustments, we will print the full scale objects. Our work will be seen by future physic classes at NA.
